What is the general thought about such a configuration. A liftingbody with a close coupled t-tail.
I would think that it might suffer potentially from deap stalls at high angles of attack do to blanking of the horizontal stabilizer. Also as the angle of attack increases, the fuselage would be...
My design is for a 3 seat/semi staggered 138cm 54.5” wide at the hips. The canopy does bulges out slightly to allow for a few extra inches elbow room on either side. It should be cosy inside with all seats filled.
Okay, can we please dispell the notion that US pilots are somehow superior to pilots worldwide.
All over the world you will find good pilots and not so good pilots.
Boeing lied and coerced the regulator to push though shotty engineering. Regulators worldwide have now realised that the aircraft...

The first engine was a two rotor setup, connected to a belt type Psru. They second engine was the same as the first other then it having a planetary gear type psru. And third engine...
I am going to be there on Friday and Saturday as well.
Do you guys have any recommendations as to where to stay?
It would be nice to meet some of you in person, maybe over a beer and bratwurst for lunch.

After watching this video I was able to disseminate the following features.
Twin 70 hp engines.
Long-ez type construction, ie The availably to build from...
If you where to built a flying car with the wheels-CG location similar to that of a car, It is my understanding that the aircraft would not be abel to rotate during the takeoff roll. Or at least need much higher rotation speeds to overcome this. i.e. the aeromobil II or terrafugia proof of...
